Expansion in Africa

We recently announced our partnership with a printer in New Zealand (via our IFWG Publishing Australia site) to allow us to effectively distribute our titles there. With great pleasure we can now reveal that we have arrangements in Nigeria to print and distribute Biola Olatunde‘s extensive catalogue of IFWG novels locally.

Biola has a very good reputation in her homeland, particularly in the fields of poetry and script writing. For some years now she has published four novels through IFWG Publishing International, as well as a chap-ebook of short fiction. We have recognised her storytelling and social commentary skills years ago, and appreciate her narrative that resonates with Nigerian English idiom and style, but we strongly believe in supporting authors in their homelands/locale – without local printing arrangements, this is impossible.

Front Cover Blood Contract 2

Biola’s first novel, Blood Contract, is now printed and warehoused in Nigeria and will be distributed to local bookstores. We are over the moon with this very important step forward. Her contemporary African fantasy trilogy, Numen Eye, will be printed in coming weeks. Following this, her chapbook, Sunset Tales, will also be available locally in print form.
